  • Founded in 2022, Inspectle Food develops a B2B platform for conducting regular hygiene inspections in GFSI certified food production plants that helps to solve non-conformities faster and saves quality team time due to automatically generated reports and user friendly interface.
  • Inspectle claims that by utilizing its automated system to track and assign non-conformities, it has achieved tangible outcomes with clients like Lallemand and Saarioinen. This has led to improved hygiene standards, decreased costs and food waste, and an added sense of assurance for the end consumer.
  • Thanks to the fresh funds, Inspectle Food is looking to expand the business across Europe and the US.
